The Miquon School was founded in 1932 by two mothers, disillusioned with their own traditional educations, who discovered the progressive education model captured better the curiosity, abilities, and potential for growth within each child. From its 'one-room' beginnings in the old farmhouse that now serves as the office building, the school grew steadily. However Miquon intentionally remains a small school, ranging between 100 and 180 students for the past 50 years, in order to foster the close relationships that promote effective learning and teaching.
